Quietly going about it..


Quietly going about their business but such a pity some smoke too.

Doing it quietly is not always the case arriving at that pinnacle of bliss, but there are somethings you just cannot change and one of them is that human beings like making babies, so it is nice to know the majority of us are quietly going about the business of keeping the human race going, and it seems those who are leading the charge are women in western Sydney the city's true heartland.
Now this is good for the economy and-more importantly-good for brothers and sisters. It's not scandalous or outrageous but behind closed doors across Sydney little miracles are being made every day.
Unfortunately some women are making headlines for the wrong reasons, I suppose you might say this a spin off from a former post of mine "Kiss a non smoker and taste the difference"(Archives March 23-05). Most intelligent people who smoke are probably aware that smoking for the first thirty years of your adult life will reduce your life expectancy by up to ten years and also reduce hanky panky within the boudoir considerably too. those who have stopped puffing will tell you I must have been nuts not to have packed it in long ago. However, it is sad when the habits of mothers who smoke will in turn give their unborn child a legacy of lung and breathing problems to deal with for the rest of their lives. I am reliably informed that around twenty per cent of pregnant women continue to smoke during pregnancy against strong advice from health authorities. I say it should be mandatory by law for women to stop smoking during pregnancy and measures taken to forcibly isolate them from tobacco products in order to guarantee the optimum health of the new baby.

Twenty three years ago just prior to Christmas I was suffering from a severe bout of colley wobbles-an undefined medical problem which was giving me a few bad moments with ongoing pain. In the washup the Doc informed me I would be dead within three months if I did not cease smoking. From that moment on for me fags were a thing of the past, I had too much to live for, my health improved and gave me more powers within the boudoir.
However, I still believe that the Doctor was a lying sod, but I had little time to Question his wisdom.
Vest.... Back soon.

Wise words. One thing to be said for smoking though is I have never come across a smoker with bad breath. Yes, they smell or taste of smoke, but not proper bad breath. Interestingly the advice for pregnant women recently changed in that they can have a glass of wine when they are pregnant and no harm will be done to the unborn.

I was born in a time when most people smoked and the bad effects on unborn babies weren't known, nor was the connection between smoking and lung cancer known. I grew up living with smokers, married smokers, my two sons smoke. I have asthma.
I agree that giving up smoking while pregnant is good in theory, BUT, by the time women realise they're pregnant, the tiny foetus has already formed lungs and heart etc and if they begin smoking again right after the birth, the baby will still suffer the effects of smoke in the house and even residual smoke in the mother's hair, clothes and on her breath.

Um, dunno whether this comment will 'get through' the orifice of 'internettical constrictions' ..

but self has achieved at least two progeny (that i know of). One remains alive; one died before birth.

There is, however, an argument to be made that this planet is suffering from 'overpopulation'. Humans could, perhaps, be considered an uncontrollable "virus". Planet Gaia is struggling at this point in time -

Andrew . A glass of wine ? depending on the size of the glass and how often!

River. I was introduced to Duty Free smokes from the age of eighteen while in the RN , but didn't smoke until about age 22, ventilation on RN ships was poor also my Action Station up high on the ADP meant I would get all the free smoke I needed from the ships funnels.

Davoh. Humans an uncontrollable Virus ? Well maybe some of those geezers in what was once known as Mesopotamia could be a start. Mind you most of them are already decimating each other which helps.
